It occurred to me when meandering through my GoodReads list, that I automatically disregard any fiction since it seems often irrelevant to a business podcast. However, when I thought of Aaron Yoshino, I instinctually found myself gravitating towards All The Light We Cannot See. All The Light We Cannot See is a novel about World War II and a little French girl and German boy and how their worlds collide as result of the war.
I had the same visceral reaction to Aaron Yoshino’s work as I did when reading All The Light We Cannot See. That reaction was this is really really mind-blowingly great stuff. Generally, in both photography and writing I consume a lot of good stuff, but sometimes forget what it’s like to have the really mind-blowing stuff. Both pieces of work remind me of Steve Jobs noting that the best argument for the existence of God is Yo-Yo Ma’s playing.
